Abstract

Left ventricular catheterization at the bedside without the aid of fluoroscopy was accomplished successfully in 38 of 46 acutely ill patients with the use of a specially curved polyethylene catheter introduced percutaneously in the femoral artery. The procedure could be accomplished quickly and with no serious complications. This simplified technique may make left ventricular pressure monitoring a practical diagnostic and therapeutic guide in certain patients with shock.
